Paleo Porridge 1

Paleo Porridge

Serves: 1

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week! I am happy to tell you that it looks like things are finally back to normal on my computer! I don’t know what, how or why, but after a few clicks of some buttons yesterday morning things started working again! I was amazed, but soooo thrilled and thankful to not have to deal with that headache for a 5th day!

Today’s recipe is another one of those single serve, quick recipes that I make very often! It is very simple and very versatile! You can bulk it up to make it a full meal or simply enjoy it as a snack! Either way, it makes the perfect, warm meal on these cold mornings! It also is a great replacement for those who aren’t eating grains but are craving that morning oatmeal! I hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚

Fit Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 tbs (14g) coconut flour
  • 2 tbs (13g) ground flax
  • 1/2 c coconut milk (carton – or milk of choice)
  • mix ins of choice! (fruit, nuts, seeds, pumpkin, dried fruit, nut butters, etc! You can even go savory and add in ground turkey, salsa, avocado!)


1. In a microwave safe bowl add your 3 egg whites.

2. Add in your flax and coconut flour.

3. Top off with your milk.

4. Mix well.

5. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes depending on your microwave*

*be sure to watch this so that it does not explode all over your microwave! You may need to stop it every 45 seconds or so and give it a quick mix.

6. Remove from the microwave and mix vigorously until well combined. It should resembled a thick bowl of creamy oatmeal.

7. Mix in your desired flavors or toppings.

Some of my favorite combinations are: topping with cherries and almonds, mixing in pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, going tropical with some pineapple and shredded coconut topped with coconut manna or taking it in the savory direction with ground turkey, salsa and avocado! The possibilities are endless! P.S – it’s also great with kabocha squash mixed in and topped with sunflower seed butter! I’m just saying… πŸ˜‰

Paleo Porridge 4

This one has white chia seeds and almond extract mixed in and then topped with some peach slices! It made the perfect afternoon snack!

  • Looks delish! I would most likely modify since I am not Paleo & prefer less fat & more protein but easy to do hear – YUM!

    ONG! Thank you thank you thank you! I am going strict paleo on Monday to hopefully combat health issues and I love my oatmeal! I’ve been eating it like crazy before I give up grain and now I’m ecstatic I don’t have to be completely without my power bowl! Plus this is nut free and since im allergic, this is like heaven! I cannot wait to try. Thank you!!!!

        That’s awesome to hear that as I follow your blog, you will be starting a paleo challenge too! I’m considering starting a blog just to document it and collect how I’m feeling throughout (because I honestly don’t need a paper trail anymore, lol). But I can’t wait to see your paleo appropriate recipes! I hope that you find some benefit through it as well! πŸ™‚

  • Looks YUMMY and a good substitute when you don’t want oats! What can I use instead of coconut flour? Just regular whole wheat flour? Let me know when you have a free moment. THANKS! How crazy is this weather? BLECH!

    This was delicious! The one thing I had trouble giving up when I went paleo was oatmeal, which managed to sneak its delicious self back in..opps! Now I have a replacement!

        The first time I just used cinnamon and nutmeg and it was really good but this morning I added some frozen blueberries, one drop of liquid chocolate stevia, and some cinnamon. I also replaced the coconut milk with vanilla almond milk (was out of coconut). DELICIOUS! I was super strict paleo from May of last year to September and since then I’m calling myself “modified paleo.”

            I try to combine the best of the clean eating world and the paleo world. High fat is hard on my body as well. So right now it is no dairy or wheat, both are too hard on my stomach. Absolutely no sugar. Very limited rice and quinoa. I am also trying to decrease my reliance on oats as sometimes there is cross contamination w/wheat, but that is hard. I eat a lot of sweet potatoes for carbs as well as squash and other root vegetables. I eat lean meats and keep to a low/moderate fat intake.
